Cape Town - Departing Platinum Stars striker Mogakolodi Ngele is looking forward to life with Mamelodi Sundowns, but admits he is leaving Dikwena with a heavy heart.

Ngele signed with Sundowns from Platinum Stars last year but spent this season on loan in Rustenburg as part of the deal.

The Botswana international featured heavily for Dikwena but struggled for game time during Allan Freese's reign and the striker admits Johnson's departure was difficult for him.

"I was shattered and really felt I was losing myself. Cavin was a dad to me and he guided me to the right direction," he told the club's official website.

"He gave soccer a different meaning, and his way of accepting everyone and making sure that we respect all at Platinum Stars made me want to work with him more."

Johnson's return saw Ngele back in the starting line-up and he admitted he will leave the club with unforgettable memories.

"Memories I have with this club will never be erased, that is for sure. We lived, we played and we inspired," he added.

"A small team like we were known but giving big teams a run for their money.

"I will always look back and smile, for the memories of myself with my teammates will be cherished wherever I go.

"To the people of North West, le sale le direla Dikwena, ke lebogile," Ngele concluded.
